Year 1/2

Welcome to the Year 1/2 page.

Our topic on 'Plants' is now in full swing. We have spent time drawing plants, written a report explaining the purpose of each part of a plant, planted sunflower seeds and explored the wonderful plants (and generally had lots of fun) at Beningbrough Hall. 

25th and 26th June: 'Didn't we have a lovely time on the day(s) we went to Beningbrough'.

Talent Show Update:


A HUGE thank you to all of the children who took part in the Year 1 and 2 talent show heats last week. It was lovely to see the children sharing their talents and interests, and having the confidence to perform in front of others. After some really tricky deliberations, the following children were chosen to go forward to the Headlands' Got Talent finals on Friday 3rd July:

Year 1

  • Sofia Iemboli and Ben Pape
  • Lena Zhang
  • Evie Ash

Year 2

  • Sophie Wade
  • Amelia Cashmore
  • Lola Ogden.

Remember to keep practicing !!


Dates to look forward to ...

Wednesday 1st July - Transition Day.

Thursday 2nd July - KS1 Sports Day. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school.

Friday 3rd July (PM) - Headlands' Got Talent Finals. Please make sure all music, props and costumes are in school with the children.



Phonics Screening Check - Parents Pack

Above is the phonics screening parent pack given out at the meetings on Monday 18th May. Included in the pack are useful phonics web links, phoneme cards for parents (with handy pronunciation guides!) and phoneme cards for the children. Why not try to make some 'alien' words with them and practice for the check.

An Anthology of Poetry:

All of the children have now received their very own copies of our first 2 poems. Please make sure that your child brings their anthology in to school each week so that they can receive their next poem.


World Book Day at Headlands:

Thank you to everyone who brought in a photograph and some packaging. The photographs are on display in the classrooms and look fantastic!



Tuesday 24th February: From Farm to Fork

Jo (from Tesco at Clifton Moor) kick started our new PLOD with some food sorting and tasting. The children are now really keen to find out more. Head to our PLOD page for links to support this half term's work on 'Food Glorious Food'.
